According to the mechanic, there's just a possibility of wear in the drop links themselves, though only on very high mileage cars. The links apparently are about 60 each but only the bushes were needed on my car.

I haven't had the bill yet. I'll post any parts numbers when I get it.

In passing, I can't tell you what a pleasure it was to find a main dealer mechanic who not only knows what he's doing but is prepared to take the time to discuss the problem with the customer - a refreshing change.
